After our SXSW showcase last week that included Dan Deacon, our own Stephen Thompson called the indie rocker/composer "a ringleader for a ludicrously overdriven orgy of sound." Given that description, who better for Deacon to team up with than NOW Ensemble and the Calder Quartet, two heavyweight groups from new music community known for their own vibrant yet serious musical ruckuses?
As part of the Ecstatic Music Festival at New York's Merkin Concert Hall, they will be playing a series of world-premiere works by Deacon ? both for the individual ensembles and for the two groups together, forming a mini chamber orchestra. Join us and our friends at New York's Q2 Music to hear the show live and participate in our webchat.
